The Seismic Breakthrough of the Hebrews

I had the privilege of recently being in the South of France, where we saw the prehistoric art of the Chauvet Cave. You probably remember when this magnificent discovery was made in the 1990s of cave drawings created some 30,000 years ago.

Nothing prepared me for their power and beauty, their contemporary timelessness, and the sense that we were witnessing what was holiest for a people who were crying out: “I was here. I matter. Look at our world and behold the beauty and wonder of it all.”

Thank you for bringing the Chauvet Cave to my attention. I hadn’t heard about it before. I followed the link on the transcript, and watched the video, which led me to other videos about the cave, one of which was an amazing 3D interaction video that gave me chills (the good kind). I learned that some of the drawings were started and then finished some 5,000 years later. This is one of the most interesting things I have ever seen. Again, thank you!

Thank you for giving us a glimpse into the Chauvet Cave, and presenting the idea that the drawings represented more for the painters than just showing animals that were living among them.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
